Reflections


The Continuing Presence on Earth


In today's Gospel, Jesus shares his mission to proclaim the Kingdom of Heaven with his disciples. The signs of the kingdom's presence consist of the work that Jesus has already been doing: the sick are cured, lepers are cleansed, demons are driven out, and the dead are raised to life. The disciples are sent to continue doing the work that Jesus has begun. This is a moment of transition in Matthew's Gospel. The focus has shifted from the ministry of Jesus to the work of the community that he has inaugurated. More than any other Gospel, Matthew's Gospel elaborates on the work of the Church, which is to continue after Jesus' death and resurrection.


The Gospel reports that Jesus commissions twelve disciples. Many scholars believe that the twelve disciples symbolize the twelve tribes of Israel. It designates, therefore, continuity between Israel and the Church.


Matthew lists the names of the twelve disciples, as do Mark and Luke. Matthew also uses the word apostle when referring to the Twelve. The word apostle means “one who is sent.” In this context, Matthew is calling attention to the mission that the twelve disciples are being given. They are sent by Jesus to proclaim the kingdom of heaven in word and deed.


As Jesus sent his disciples to continue his work and mission, so too the Church is sent by Jesus. The Church is his continuing presence on earth. Every member of the Church is sent by Jesus to contribute to this mission.

Archdiocese Notices & Events



PROJECT ADVANCE 2023


Dear Parishioners,

We are writing to seek your support for the 2023 Project Advance campaign. Project Advance allows the Archdiocese of Vancouver and, more particularly, our St. Edmund's community to come together to support communal projects.

Please see Archbishop Millar's video message attached (click on link below and scroll down to watch video)

Our Parish fundraising goal for the Archdiocese this year is $33,000. This means that anything raised over $33,000 comes back to St. Edmunds for local projects. Last year we were able to repair and replace the underground plumbing and pavement in the school parking lot.

Currently, the stairs leading from the rectory need to be replaced. Our current goal is to raise funds to replace and extend the deck from the rectory to the Church/sacristy. This will provide an opportunity to extend the outdoor space to accommodate more people, provide a space to socialize, and provide a separate outdoor space for quiet reflection and prayer.

Every gift, regardless of its size, makes a difference. Volunteers will be available after each mass this weekend to take your donation and answer any questions. You may also make a donation online here: https://support.rcav.org/project-advance-2023/ Be sure to select St. Edmund's in the parish drop down menu to ensure the excess funds come back to our community.

Thank you for your generosity
